Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will be returning to my area – the Myrtle Beach area – to build a second home for a deserving family. The local builder has setup a website where you can see the needs for the build as well as other information about the family, location, etc. after ‘door knock’ next Monday. The build is set to begin on Jan 11 and reveal on Sunday, Jan 17. Check out http://www.extremehorry.com for more information and to volunteer, if you’re local.
In addition to the build, the organizers have started a canned food drive with the hopes of collecting 10 tons of food – yes, literal TONS of food. Given the state of the economy and the fact that food pantries are in need of food to distribute to families in the area, its great to see the builder using this opportunity to raise awareness and help the entire community, in addition to a family.
There is also a pep rally this morning at Coastal Carolina’s Wall Auditorium to kick off the project.
